How To Search Through File Contents Using Windows 10 Search

Windows 10 have added many useful feature. The Cortana assistant and search feature is getting powerful and practically useful day by day.
The Windows search is really fast and useful if you compare with the older versions of Windows like Windows 7.

You can use the Windows search feature to search the contents of the file instead of searching mere file properties and the file name. You just have to change little settings.

Here are simple steps.. 

  • Go to 'file types' tab and select the option 'Index properties and file contents'.
  • You can also exclude some types of files those should not be indexed. Like you can skip files with unknown extensions, Windows help files and similar so that the search result would be clutter free. For that untick the file types you don't want to be indexed.

  • Give little time to Windows for refreshing the index. Now you are ready to search through file contents.
Do you use the Cortana or the Windows search frequently? What is your experience?
